Concert Review: The Royal Concept, October 22nd, Wrongbar

royal concept

The Royal Concept are a young Swedish four piece band whose energetic hook ladened debut ep has been in our rotation for a while now.

It turns out we weren’t the only ones.

Playing for the first time in Canada, the group rocked out to a good crowd at the Wrongbar on Monday prompting me to wonder where the kids get their music thee days. It was a pretty young crowd.

As one might suspect, the group played tracks off that ep but what surprised me was the thundering pulse at which the group played those songs. With multiple members on keyboards it was pretty clear that the group is well verse in electronics and mixed with their jangly guitar pop sound, it all sounded rather well. For such a new band, lead singer David Larson has already developed some rock star moves, including this one (2:00 mark):

Epic. Crowd pleaser Gimme Twice ended the short but energetic set. Im pretty sure it won’t be their last show here.
